Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today’s all about bookish character traits we love reading about. And when thinking about it, I definitely notice a pattern in the character traits of some of my favorite characters. They almost always fall under one of six categories. So without further ado: here are the 6 character traits I will always love reading about!
The amicable, kind, loyal characters
Kindness and loyalty and friendship are some of the highest values out there according to me. So naturally I gravitate towards the nice characters, the kind characters, those who will always be there for those they care about. I mean, Samwise Gamgee isn’t my favorite character ever for no reason. It’s my 60% Hufflepuff side.
Examples: Samwise, Jem and Grey
The determined, ambitious, confident characters
I’m wouldn’t call myself confident at all, but I still really love reading about those characters who have swagger for days and can stroll into any situation with full confidence that they’ll come out on top.
Examples: Lila, Manon and Mia
The quick-witted, funny, sarcastic characters
Ah, I can’t help it. If you make me laugh, I’ll probably fall in love with you. Bonus points if a character’s humor is sarcastic. I LOOOVE me some good sarcastic characters.
Examples: Nikolai, Monty and Leo
The clever, intelligent characters
Though I may be 60% Hufflepuff, I’m also 40% Ravenclaw and that means I automatically admire intelligent characters. Just reading about them makes me want to go back to school and learn about all the things. Bonus points if their smarts help save the day!
Examples: Hermione, Annabeth and Nina
The flawed, morally grey characters
A little darkness never killed nobody… or did it? Seriously, morally gray characters are the best and there’s nothing more I love than discovering a dark character’s soft spot.
Examples: Kaz, Victor and Lira
The shy, anxious, introverted characters
Though it’s nice to read about characters who are not like me at all, it’s definitely also nice when you can relate to a character. That’s why I love reading about shy and introverted characters!
Examples: Robin, Cath, Cress
